    Unfortunately no competition in my future.
    I buy and build/ refurb as a hobby, gotta keep the hands busy. Probably gonna sell it to fund another project.

    Good enough for Mick Andrews. I think he said it was a lot of work though!

    In the background there is another bike, I wondered why did no one mention anything to the Indian trials bike:

    Google Alpha 240 trials bike and you'll get the full story. I'd post the link but it's not working on my phone.

    That is a nice bike but just got the Youngtimer status, still five years away from a classic bike or Oldtimer.
    First water cooled Beta so I would keep it in that status and organize papers, does it have papers?

    I have a Beta too, a TR34 MKII (1988), still air cooled and witch conventional fork and steel frame.
